Don’t these look tasty? I’ve been testing recipes lately for chewy granola bars. I don’t like to buy them at the store…they are filled with too many ingredients and are just too easy (and inexpensive) to not make myself. Plus, homemade granola bars taste so much better!
I’m sharing a recipe for gluten free honey nut granola bars over at Ask Anna today! She’s a pretty cool girl and I am a monthly-contributor on her blog…which if you haven’t checked out yet, is AWESOME! Great cleaning, organizing, decorating tips. Anna has a great heart, filled with compassion for others. Be sure to like Ask Anna on facebook too!

Is there something I can substitute in for the cashews? I don't have any, must boys don't like them. And was hoping to make these for them tomorrow.
Where do you buy your nuts? I have not found a brand that is not processed in a shared facility with wheat products. Thank you.
Thanks for this recipe, Sarah 🙂
I changed a few things too to suit us! I made it nut free for school lunches – I replaced the quantity with pepitas, coconut and sunflower seeds. After I processed the first lot of oats, I then pulsed the pepitas, shredded coconut, sunflower seeds and the rest of the oats a few times so they were chopped a little. Then I added the rest of the dry ingredients (subbing honey for rice malt syrup as I'd run out & rapadura for the brown sugar for personal preference) mixed with the wet as per instructions.
However, I am sick of muesli bar recipes that have to be kept in the fridge. They are no food for lunchboxes as they are a sticky messy snack by the time they get to them. I wanted a muesli bar that could be kept out of the fridge and not tie to a melting mass of stickiness… So… I decided to cook them. I cooked at 170-180 degrees about 10 minutes. Let them cool a little, took out of ps and left to cool properly.
No sticky mess 🙂 🙂 🙂 they weren't extra crunchy either but just right. Both my allergy ridden so now fussy 1 & 3 year old like then 😀
